In Lagos: Nigerians bail out nursing mother detained in hospital

Nigerians have come to the rescue of a nursing mother, Blessing Bassey, and her baby, who for seven months had been sleeping on the floor of one of the wards of Mojol Hospital, Church Street, in the Shasha area of Lagos State.
Punch had reported that the 27-year-old was delivered of a baby girl at the hospital through a caesarean section.


The hospital management, however, ordered nurses and doctors to ensure that Blessing did not leave with her baby until the N95,000 balance of their bill was paid.


The Cross River State indigene, who bemoaned her fate, said efforts by her husband to raise the money were abortive.


After the Punch’s publication on October 2, 2020, various persons and groups offered to settle the bill.

Blessing, while appreciating Punch for the report, said, “If not for the publication, there will be no hope for me and I will still be sleeping on the hospital floor.”  Punch
